NWACC Utilizes Workday to Streamline the Student Experience

Workday Student Logo and NWACC Logo

To elevate student success, NWACC is moving most of the college's student-related systems to Workday - a simple, cloud-based mobile-friendly information system. This initiative is referred to as the Workday Student project  where many of the tasks that students, faculty and staff perform on a regular basis will be available at any time, from anywhere, and in one place – Workday.  

Here's a quick look at what you can expect when Workday Student completely rolls out.  

If you're a faculty member, you'll use Workday Student to: 

  • Enter and change final grades 
  • Find your course schedule 
  • Check enrollments 
  • View class rosters 
  • Review advisees 
  • Find your classroom 
  • And more 

If you're a student, you'll use Workday Student to: 

  • Register for classes and add, drop, or swap classes 
  • View your schedule and grades 
  • View your financial aid 
  • Pay your bill or request a refund 

If you're a staff member, you may use Workday Student to: 

  • Find and/or update student information 
  • Complete tasks necessary for enrollment, registration, advising, financials, records and others 
  • Support students in self-service required tasks 

Roll Out Phases / Milestones
Workday Student capabilities will roll out in phases (or milestones) beginning October of 2022 through July of 2023. Each milestone will expand student-centered modules within Workday.  

Modules include: 

  • Curriculum   
  • Recruiting & Admissions 
  • Student Records 
  • Student Financials 
  • Academic Advising 
  • Financial Aid 

The migration of processes from Banner to Workday Student will begin with the student/academic cycle for the Summer 2023 semester. 

Training & Help
To help you with the transition throughout the Workday Student phase, NWACC will be offering training sessions for faculty, staff and students, as well as step-by-step guides at times aligned with the student lifecycle. Training information and tools will be housed on the college’s internal Workday website on Microsoft SharePoint at www.nwacc.edu/WorkdayStudent.  

Change Network Team 
Workday Student Change Champions are NWACC employees who are committed to improving the student experience by providing education and communication support about Workday Student to other college members and facilitate feedback to the NWACC Workday Student project team.
